The Violin Man's Legacyby Seumas Gallacher
Thriller with bloody twists and turns as ruthless killers meet their match in a former SAS hit squad.
Jack Calder is an ex-SAS soldier working with former colleagues at ISP, a specialist security firm. He is sent to investigate a murderous diamond heist in Holland, but swiftly learns that there is a very strong Far East connection. He then travels to Hong Kong where he meets the glamorous chief of ISP's local bureau, May-Ling.
Together they begin to unravel a complex web of corruption. The twin spiders at the centre of this web are the Chan brothers, leaders of one of Hong Kong's most ruthless and powerful triad gangs.
The trail of death and mayhem coils across Europe, Hong Kong and South America until all the scores are settled.
Seumas Gallacher is a great writer who brings his characters alive. He knows how to develop a plot to hold your interest. I love to literally fly away on his imagination to a land of story-telling like no other. You can't go wrong with this book or any book he has written. I highly recommend this book and this author.
About the author
Seumas Gallacher was born in the cradle of the Govan shipyards in Glasgow in the so-called "bad old days" which were in reality the greatest of days, where everybody was a real character of note.
An early career as a trainee Scottish banker led to a spell in London, where his pretence to be a missionary converting the English locals fell on deaf ears.
Escape to the Far East in 1980 opened up access to cultures and societies on a global scale, eventually bringing the realisation that the world is quite simply one large extended village.
The lifelong desire to write has resulted in The Violin Man's Legacy, the first in th Jack Calder series.
Seumas says that finishing that novel was one of the best feelings he has ever experienced in a life full of rich emotions.
Vengeance Wears Black, the second book in the Jack Calder series, was released in July 2012.
